Track Name: Hudson Canyon
Into the blue brown far below
Great expectations
Torn away to the ebb and flow
Separation

Distant call
You sink my stone
Fence will fall
We're standing on

Into the steel black
Prisms fold
Unnerving motion
The murky water starts to glow
New York split open
Track Name: Monitor
Beyond the hollowest vertebrae
Elastic motor
To fuel the ways that we hesitate
Won't cross the border

Incantations
What we offer
Decorations for the altar
Preparations for departure

Caught away in a power play
Conjured the north wind
A paper heart to desire flame
Romance the ashes

Incantations
What we offer
Decorations for the altar
Reservations for the slaughter

Monitor me
Track Name: Evelyn
Magnify the prize
Hold it in your eyes
Feather light hearts would fall
Watch the winter rise

Evelyn's in disguise
A million beams of light
Carry you to your door
Forever, by your side

Watch the winter fall
I've been through the walls
Below the open door
Harvest the unknown

Evelyn, please don't...
Track Name: Always (Erasure cover - live in Toronto)
Open your eyes
I see, your eyes are open
Wear no disguise for me
Come into the open

When it's cold outside
Am I here in vain?
Hold on to the night
There will be no shame

Always, I want to be with you
Make believe with you and live in harmony

Melting the ice for me
Jump into the ocean
Hold back the tide, I see
Your love's in motion

When it's cold outside
Am I here in vain?
Hold on to the night
There will be no shame
Track Name: Pebble Worship (live in Toronto)
A child of the promenade
The gift you gave has made me
Estranged from my hiding place
The mess I've made will save me

If I am but a pebble in his garden
He knows my name

Heightened heavens fall away
Kneel before the ones you lay

A child of the mountain shade
The winds of change have claimed me
The grains of my younger ways
This labyrinth amazed me

A child of the everglade
My lazy ways, my daydreams
Align to my darker days
This mess I've made will save me

If I am but a pebble in his garden
He knows my name
